Last Year’s Wedding Blooper…

Last Year’s Wedding Blooper…My second daughter, Maggie, was married to her high school sweetheart last June.  It was a beautiful wedding. Both Maggie and Robert, her husband, are highly motivated, organized, and just “together”.  As they were getting married right out of college, Maggie was living at home during the wedding planning process, and I worried little about the details.  She took care of them all – well, they both did.  Rob was also very involved in the wedding planning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The morning of the wedding went well.  We were on time for our nail and hair appointments – not always the case with the Karnes girls…  Imagine my surprise when Maggie called me and said, “Umm, Mom, I think I’ll come home for a little while before I get dressed at the hotel.”  My ‘mom antenna’ went up.  “Why, Maggie?” I queried.  (We had plans to meet our photographer at the Glastonbury Hilton to do a pre-wedding shoot) “Well…,” she hedged.  Out with it, I thought.  “I want to grab my passport,” she confessed.  I knew at that moment we had a problem, a BIG one.  As I was home, I volunteered to begin the search.  Now let’s just say, I wasn’t dressed, hadn’t applied my makeup, hadn’t given any time to the younger girls, but hey — my hair and nails were done.  🙂  No passport.  (Why this was so chilling, was because Rob and Maggie were due to fly out at 8:00 AM the next morning for Jamaica!)  I called in the troops.  Kenny got on the phone and began calling government agencies to find out the process for obtaining an emergency passport.  (Remember the wedding was on a Friday).  “No problem!” he was told.  “Just get here, (an hour away), by 4:00 PM today and we’ll issue your daughter another passport!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s about 12:30 PM now…the wedding was at 2:00 PM.  By this time, I had a pretty good inkling where the passport was, but there was no getting it before the flight time the next day…Check back tomorrow, and find out if we have a happy ending…or not…
